HR business partner ranked as seventh best job in UK

HR business partner has been ranked as the seventh-best job in the UK for 2020, moving up from 20th in 2019. 

This is according to Glassdoor, who have released their top 25 best jobs in the UK for 2020 table. HR business partner is also the highest climbing job according to the same table Glassdoor released in 2019.

Enterprise architect came in as the top job role for 2020 which also has the highest median salary of £75,209, then product manager, operations manager, business development manager and DevOps engineer.

Amanda Stansell, senior economic research analyst at Glassdoor said:

The jobs market continues to diversify as new skills emerge and new technologies change the world of work. As we enter a new decade for job seekers, the 25 Best Jobs in the UK for 2020 aims to highlight roles that are in demand, offer desirable salaries and also give workers job satisfaction.

Enterprise Architect is the first technology role to be named the Best Job in the UK, beating marketing, finance and ops roles that have traditionally taken the top spot. With the highest salary of the 25 Best Jobs, this demonstrates that technology roles are not only offering attractive compensation but also offer an increasing level of highly-prized job satisfaction.”

That said, we see a wide variety of job fields in the Top 25. From sales, marketing and technology, through to HR, recruitment, engineering and more. Experienced job seekers from any of these fields are well placed to maximise the vast number of open roles that we see today.

Glassdoor reported that January sees a 17 per cent spike in job applications.

Glassdoor’s 25 Best Jobs in the UK for 2020 report identifies specific jobs with the highest overall Glassdoor job score. The Glassdoor job score is determined by weighing three factors equally: earning potential (median annual base salary), overall job satisfaction rating, and the number of job openings. Results represent job titles that rate highly among all three categories. The Glassdoor job score is based on a 5-point scale (5.0=best job, 1.0=bad job). For a job title to be considered, it must receive at least 30 salary reports and at least 30 job satisfaction ratings shared by UK-based employees over the past year (11/12/2018-10/12/2019).
